We believe that Canada has a real opportunity to be a leader in the global market by innovating and developing solutions here that can address needs and challenges everywhere. Marine Renewables Canada works with its members to identify critical needs for the industry and facilitates development of working groups or initiatives to bring members who have challenges together with those who may be able to provide solutions. This work is crucial in reducing cost and risk, accelerating innovation and maximizing benefits to Canada.

Through our website and social media we work to have the most up to date and extensive information on marine renewable energy available.
